Although theyâ€™ve been around forever, I donâ€™t understand why tip jars are necessary in coffee, sandwich or ice cream shops.
I assume by the very nature that people work in a place like a sandwich shop that they donâ€™t make much money but panhandling at your job?Â Câ€™mon!
Why should we stop at the aforementioned establishments?Â I donâ€™t feel I get paid enough.Â Would it be completely acceptable to put a tip jar on my desk at work?Â Why not put out tip jars at the cashiers' checkout line at local supermarkets?Â My proctologist does not have a tip jar and if itâ€™s anyone who deserves a tip for poking around back there with a flashlight, itâ€™s him.
Then thereâ€™s the whole awkwardness of giving someone a tip.Â Iâ€™m sure most tippees prefer large bills and not change.Â Want to see time stand still?Â Drop noisy quarters, nickels and pennies in a tip jar and you might as well have farted in the jar and received less guilt to boot.
I particularly love the times when I go to put a damn good tip in the jar with dollar bills or a five spot and the schmuck wasnâ€™t even looking.Â So I fish out the tip and wait until I have tipper-to-tippee eye contact.Â I get in a lot of fights that way.Â People always seem to miss the insertion of the tip and only catch the fishing out part.
The best tip I could give these people probably would not be taken in the spirit in which it was given â€“ become an exotic dancer.Â Now thatâ€™s where the real money is at!Â No tip jar needed and patrons usually donâ€™t stuff coins down your g-string.
